Format: Audio CD
The fourth studio album by the criminally underrated No-Man sees them navigating a slippery, light-footed semi-surreal path between art-pop and trip-hop via menacing night-time songs of obsession, disillusion, mortality, the pangs of corroded love affairs and the victimhood of fame. Multi-instrumentalist Steven Wilson (Porcupine Tree) and sensuously vulnerable singer Tim Bowness are occasionally joined by Richard Barbieri (Japan, JBK, Porcupine Tree), Robert Fripp and Mel Collins (King Crimson) on a moody, fragmented odyssey through dark hours of the soul. Even if there's no particular homecoming in sight, and no obvious answers to the plaguing questions and doubts, the journey's studded with unforgettable, bleak lyrical imagery and graced by persistently excellent music. If Tricky had hankered to be Scott Walker, if King Crimson had locked horns with Massive Attack, if AR Kane had eaten ABC; if the Wu-Tang's RZA had hatched plots with Bowie, or if "Dummy" had been made by Can with David Lynch in the producer's chair... well, they might have come up with this record, but I doubt that they would've done it as well as No-Man have.

I cannot believe I have ignored this duo for so long. Listening to this album is pure joy. Every song is so totally unique. Tim Bowness' voice has a beautiful hypnotic whispering quality to it. Go out and buy this CD and the 5 other albums they have made which no one has heard of. You will get no finer music for your money. Make 2002 the year No-man are recognised!

Loops, trip hop and pop this is a superb album and to me its madness that this album has been overlooked should have been Mercury nominated in the year of release. No-man definitely one of music's most overlooked groups.

The organ and loops of `Dry cleaning Ray' the down and dirty `Time travel in Texas' the sinister `Housewives Hooked on heroin', there is not a bad song on this album.

However what makes this reissue even better value is the addition of the hard to find `Dry Cleaning Ray' EP and some rare and previously available bonus tracks. `Hit the ceiling', `where I'm calling from', `housewives hooked on heroin (alternate version)' `my rival Trevor (alternate version)'' `time travel in Texas (radio session)' and `pretty genius (radio session)'.

When you see the original versions of this album reaching £100 or more on a popular internet auction site you know you are picking up a bargain here. One of my favourite albums from the 90's

Firstly The package I received was not the hard-back 'Digi-book' style album advertised (see picture), I received a 'super jewel-case' style package instead; I would've paid extra to receive the advertised product had I known. Just a word of warning for those who care for such things!...

The album itself is very decent by-the-way, however no-man went on to produce better albums and refine their style in a way similar to later day talk-talk. This album is very unlike their later ones, incorporating such elements as dance-like beats, trip-hop and electronica; which may alienate those familiar only with Steven Wilson's other major projects, porcupine tree and his solo output. Still, it is perhaps No-Man's most diverse album, and the addition of the now very hard to find 'dry-cleaning ray' EP makes for a very worthwhile purchase for those looking to delve deeper into the No-man Cannon!
